WP1 focuses on social network effects on fertility and childbearing motivations (personal fertility ideals and intentions, perceived obstacles to and benefits of childbearing) using the register data, Finnish Family Barometers and cross-national Generations and Gender Survey (GGS), and Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). The following themes are considered WP1: (1) Type of social networks favouring childbearing; (2) Perceptions of uncertainty, social support and fertility decline; (3) Regional characteristics and fertility resilience.
